Timber Treatments

Dampshield Timber Treatments in South Wales

Dampshield offer comprehensive timber treatments for customers across South Wales. Timber is a strong and highly popular material that is used in property construction.

However, unfortunately timber is very vulnerable to damage caused by insects, fungi and damp. In addition to our damp proofing services, here at Dampshield in South Wales, we also specialise in timber treatments. We use specialist treatments to ensure that timber is protected and has an increased life span to avoid replacement. At Dampshield our team use a specialist Sovereign timber treatment that involves applying Sovereign Sovaq FLX F/1 under pressure to all accessible timbers. This includes timbers such as roofs, floors and stairs. Substantially weakened timbers must be replaced with pre-treated timber where necessary.

What Causes Timber Damage?

Many different species of insect, use wood as a source of food. Unfortunately for home owners, this can mean serious damage to timber structures within the home. A very small number of beetles can attack timber in the mainly dry conditions found in buildings. Eggs laid in timber surfaces and within timber cracks hatch to release very small grubs which bore into the wood, therefore creating small tunnels, which is where the damage begins. The insects excrete wood pellets which are also known as bore dust or frass. The size, shape and cross-section of the tunnels, coupled with the characteristics of the bore dust, can help identify the species of insects that are causing the problem.
